Topic "WinSCP File Transfer to virtual directory"

Author Message
Guest




I'm using Windows 7 and the latest version of WinSCP (4.3.9).

When I transfer files from a remote directory to my local directory, the files are being placed in an unexpected directory. When I select to transfer the files to local directory:

C:\Program Files\Persoft\STEssen\Transfer

the files actually go to:

C:\Users\lc13209\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\Persoft\STEssen\Transfer.

I can select the desired local directory using the WinSCP explorer and it confirms the desired directory when transferring the files. But the files don't go there.

Interestingly, when I manually place a file in EITHER directory using Windows Explorer and press the 'refresh' button in WinSCP, WinSCP shows the file in the 'local directory' listing.

Any help would be appreciated! Smile

Cheers,
Lee

You do not have write permissions to C:\Program Files\Persoft\STEssen\Transfer.
So the Windows redirects WinSCP to the virtual store.
Run WinSCP with elevated permissions to allow writing to C:\Program Files.
